DAY 486 - Pushed to be in God's Plan

Praise the Lord that we have completed 400 days/24 hours Prayer Campaign! Without this prayer shield I think I might not be able to face the storm of Michelle's leukemia. You really need to believe in this kind of power of prayers! You really need to join us! This is how the Lord commanded me more than a year ago to teach as many people as I can to pray as never before and to experience the power of prayers! Have you experienced yet?

Today's Reading: Judges 15
Please read Judges 15 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Pushed to be in God's plan - This is what I got from Jesus today after reading this chapter.

God pushed Samson to become someone he never could think of or want to. The Holy Spirit came upon him two times(14: 19 and 15:14) to show to other people that he was the anointed and chosen one to be the judge and so he led Israel for twenty years in the days of the Philistines.(15: 20)

God also pushed the Israelites to the edge to tie up Samson giving him to the Philistines but just to prove that Samson was the real leader from God.

Are you in a push from God so that you can be raised up to be a powerful leader?
Are you willing to accept all those kind of unbearable challenges so that God can prepare you to be a powerful leader?
Why do you waste so much time that God has to push you? Why not be willingly take the challenge and say, "Lord Jesus Christ, I am willing to do it now, help me, anoint me, Holy Spirit, so that I can be able to do it."

What I got from Jesus now is not for you to do some big things but to do "micro" things such as to use this blog as your daily devotion and encourage other people whom Jesus has put into your care to use this blog as their daily devotion. To be able to continue to do daily devotion, you may need to have two other people coming together one to more times every week to encourage each others of the fruits you get from your daily devotion. Or, in a better way, to pray for two Christians who are not have daily devotion and be their discipler. To walk with them helping them to have a daily intimate relationship with God. I feel that this is the push God wants me to do it to you right now. Do you get it?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to be willingly, faithfully and joyfully to be in your plan. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Welcome! The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christians to have daily devotion - a wonderful and intimate time with Jesus.

There are three reasons for you to use this blog as your daily devotion:
  1. A healthy spiritual diet - One chapter of the Bible daily. We really need at least one chapter of Bible daily so that we are well fed.
  2. A good example of Spiritual Journaling - What I have committed for 1,189 days(the Bible has 1,189 chapters) to write this daily post is not for teaching purposes but this is my daily spiritual journal - I write down what I hear from Jesus and how I experience His intimate relationship with me each day. I have launched a wide-spectrum research on daily devotion and have found out that there are less than 10% of Christians that are having daily devotion. Out of that 10%, many having daily devotion are doing so because of guilt (they know that they are Christians and need to have daily devotion and feel guilty if they don’t do that), duty (they need to fulfill their duty as a Christian) or study(lots of Christians primarily use their daily devotion as a time to study the Bible). I do pray and hope that you will make up your mind to have a relational daily devotion so that you can have an intimate time with Jesus. I pray that you will write your own spiritual journal as well.
  3. An online discipler – One of the reasons that so many Christians do not have daily devotion is because they do not have a discipler. A discipler can help them build up this basic element of discipleship when they first become Christians. The best way for you is to have a discipler to walk with you for a certain period of time so that daily devotion become a good habit. Or, you may have a small group of two to three people to encourage and be accountable to each other so that you won’t stop your daily devotion. I offer myself as your online discipler to walk with you daily to enrich your spiritual journey. So, shall we start this journey with Jesus Christ our Lord now!
